Make the most of your Hard Hat Hunter profile. Follow these tips, provided to us by an industry leader:
Be sure to add information to your profile. Include your name, title, and location. Be sure to add if you are willing to relocate.
Take Pride in Your Personal Brand
Your profile (and its contents) are a reflection of you. Ensure that it is free from spelling and grammatical errors. Show employers you take pride in your work (even if its simply writing about your work).
Include a Picture
Studies show that employers are more than 7 times more likely to view social media profile that includes a picture. Make sure that the photograph you select is work-appropriate.
Show Off Your Skills
Hard Hat Hunter’s profile pages are set up to show off your highlights and experience! Use it! Use photographs to demonstrate your achievements, past projects, and skillsets.
Don’t exaggerate your role or title. Our industry employer states that if you make the impression that you “tend to stretch the truth, that perception becomes your reality.”
Include Student Experience
Maybe your experience isn’t exactly industry-related, but many employers provide strong safety training, which is definitely applicable!
Provide References (or at least have them ready)
Having references readily available (either on your profile, or available immediately upon request) shows that you are prepared and professional.
Brag About Accomplishments
Make sure you complete the Certificates and Training section of your Hard Hat Hunter profile. Include all recognitions, not only work-related content; show you’re a team player by mentioning that you won “Rookie of the Year” from your baseball team, or that you’re involved in the community by indicating your involvement with the local animal shelter.
